Flowers Chardonnay Sonoma Coast 2006
Fruit was rigorously hand sorted and gently whole cluster pressed. The juice was settled off heavy lees and put to barrel for fermentation. Temperatures were in the 65-72 degree range followed by stirring of light lees for 4 months in barrel. Mostly native yeast and malo-lactic (ML) fermentations with only a few lots fermented using cultured burgundy isolates. Fermentations were complete by March of 2007.
